ShapeSheet Window Template for Visio

Those of you who spend a lot of time working with the ShapeSheet might find this useful for your documentation purposes. I've created Visio file looks like the contents of the Visio 2007 ahd Visio 2010 ShapeSheet windows. These documents make it easier to write documentation about specific ShapeSheet techniques.

The Visio 2007 file is here: http://cid-1ff099edb1c7ebfa.office.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Visio/Developer%20Information/Shapesheet%5FWindow%5FVisio%5F2007%2Evsd

The Visio 2010 file is here: http://cid-1ff099edb1c7ebfa.office.live.com/self.aspx/Public/Visio/Developer%20Information/Shapesheet^_Window^_Visio^_2010.vsd

 

Here's a comparison of the real ShapeSheet window and the the VSD file…

For example, suppose you wanted to explain how to achieve a circular gradient fill in the ShapeSheet. Just load the document, and edit the Fill Format section to highlight the changes someone should make.

The VSD doesn't cover every part of the ShapeSheet but enough to be useful. I look forward to any suggestions for improvements.
